With a private well, the only utility to worry about is the very low cost of powering your pump. No matter how much water you use, you don’t have to worry about paying more to the local water company. The water you use from your well belongs to you, and as long as it’s not dry, you can use as much as you want and not pay a cent extra.
Public water is supplied through miles of (usually) outdated piping that may be corroded or in need of repair. When using well water on your property, you know where the water is coming from, it doesn’t need to travel as far, and its the owner’s responsibility to ensure everything is up-to-date. The owner can also easily get water testing and treatment as frequently as necessary for peace of mind.
A storm can knock out power and access to water if you’re relying on public utilities. With a private well water pump, a generator is enough to ensure homeowners can still access clean, reliable water. While well water pump repairs may be needed during the lifespan of the well, most pumps last for several years without any issues or before needing to be replaced. With a private well, you won’t have to worry about not having access to water.
Supports Outdoor Hobbies
In addition to saving you money, having easy access to clean water can support outdoor activities, such as landscaping, creating decorative ponds and waterfalls, gardening and farming, outdoor cooking, and pools. The close proximity and convenient access make it easy to divert water to more fixtures.
